Unlimi-Tech Software, Inc., a pioneer in managed file transfers and the creator of FileCatalyst, an Emmy® Award winning accelerated file transfer solution, is pleased to announce an integration partnership agreement with Sweden-based Vidispine, a content management platform for media professionals and developers.

Vidispine is an API platform that software vendors, system integrators, and service providers can use to create the best possible solution for their clients, offering a complete backbone for the creation, management, storage, and processing of rich media content.

By integrating FileCatalyst technology, Vidispine incorporates accelerated file transfer into a workflow and media management solution. As file sizes increase exponentially, traditional methods of file transfer such as email or FTP become very slow or unreliable, particularly across large geographic distances or on unreliable networks. However, FileCatalyst’s unique, patent-pending UDP-based protocol is immune to network impairments such as latency and packet loss and accelerates file transfers, regardless of size or format, resulting in transfers that take minutes instead of hours or days. Integrating FileCatalyst within Vidispine also ensures security by incorporating advanced encryption, a necessity in the media and broadcasting industry.

“At Vidispine we’re always striving to integrate with cutting edge products that fit well with our solutions,” said Erik Åhlin, CEO at Vidispine. “By integrating FileCatalyst into Vidispine, we’re able to offer the best content management solution along with accelerated file transfer, security, and reliability, which will greatly benefit our customers.”

“We’re thrilled to partner with Vidispine to integrate our file transfer software into their media management solution,” said Unlimi-Tech’s Vice President of Business Development, Alan Atkinson. “FileCatalyst will provide Vidispine and VidiXplore users with blazing-fast transfer of their large media files, which is what today’s media and broadcasting professionals demand.”
